Youngsters forged friendships, conquered fears and scaled the heights during two daredevil outings to Clip ‘n Climb. The events were organised by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) for siblings who are either bereaved or have a brother or sister receiving care at Milton. Twenty-one children of all ages took part across the two sessions and enjoyed hours of adrenaline-filled fun at the centre in Clifton Road, Cambridge.
EACH Groups and Events Co-ordinator Joely Allard said: “The children had so much fun and, on both occasions, it was lovely to see their confidence grow. Some of them really embraced the more extreme challenges and enjoyed stepping out of their comfort zones.”
Staff members were supported by volunteers, who gave up their time to help make the trips a success.
“Our thanks also go to Dews Coaches, who are long-term supporters and once again provided transport completely free of charge. The children loved their driver, Carol, who they nicknamed Camel!”
The first trip took place on Thursday, 3rd August and more children took part in a second Clip ‘n Climb sibling day on Tuesday, 22nd August. EACH runs sibling days during the school holidays, for children aged five and upwards. It allows them to come together, have fun and make friends in a safe environment.
